A message from her daughter: If you knew my mom, chances are your heart is broken like mine. My mom was one of the most selfless, kind hearted and caring people that you could ever know. She truly had a heart of gold. Her smile lit up the room, and her laugh was contagious. She will be deeply missed by many.
